Tradition at the Oktoberfest

What does tradition mean for the Oktoberfest hosts?

There is much that makes the Oktoberfest a traditional folk festival. The tent owners describe what tradition means to them.

What the tent owners say about the tradition at the Oktoberfest

Tradition at the Oktoberfest means a lot. The first Oktoberfest was a wedding which took place in 1810. Also the traditional costume, the view of the Bavaria and the combination of brass music and Wiesn-hits are appreciated by the visitors. For the tent owners tradition means however above all also good beer and delicious food, like the Wiesn-Hendl or the Schweinshaxn. The most important thing, however, is the feeling of solidarity and the excellent atmosphere on the festival grounds - more in the video.
